    I got in  some MORE berries! Thats 5 flats so far this year. I know I have not been that good this year.

    So not sure where this would go, I consider it a breakfast but we had it for supper, but its really a dessert!

    I took a cup of the fresh strawberries sugared 'em and put them in a sauce pan, the sugar and heat drew out some of the juices making a fresh sweet strawberry syrup for lack of a better term.

    I used a pie plate, dissolved sugar in heavy cream, whipped in two fresh eggs and a cap of vanilla. A basic custard.

    I found (Never seen or heard of it as loaf bread before) Some thick sliced Hawaiian Loaf Bread and let it soak up that good custard.

    Slowly fried the bread and.... well a picture is better.


    I am sure a real chef could make it much more visually appealing, but he couldn't make it taste better.

    I would not have posted this had it not been so over the top! 

    Denny's ain't got nothin on me!

    Thank you, I can't express how good it was.
    Thank you Chef.... Lets see that's 7 and 1/2 gallons of strawberries processed so far.

    Chef, its totally awesome. But I am guessing you already know that. And I was totally blown away with the champagne strawberry vinegarette.

    Just things I have never personally had occassion to try before...... Its all just too much fun. The only mistake so far was the strawberry bread pudding, used the sweetened spent pulp from the jelly and it was just too much liquid, and my bread had too much hydration going for it.

    I would shovel in a plate or two of that stuff just to make me happy...   Since you were on the topic of schoolin'....   Did you attend some culinary school too ??   Maybe you was an instructor....  You surely do put up some "indepth" recipes my friend....  I'm sure I gain weight just readin' them...

    Nope, no cookin school I just stayed in a lot of kitchens and always enjoyed an open mind. I have traveled a lot and so seen somethings I think unusual by my standards and naturally one thing leads to another. LOL everytime I think I have a great idea, I google it and someone has always tried doing it before which usually assists me in my experiment.

    Strawberries are good for you. Nothing with them in it can hurt you in anyway. Friend in High School melted Exlax and dipped strawberries. She brought 'em for the football team, but some how ended up in the teachers lounge. They were all back at work the next day bright eyed and bushy tailed. My friend, she had to wait two weeks to come back.....LOL Chocolate was banned at school.

    It doesn't take but a little to make the syrup. And its goes on everything. I mean you could pour that syrup over stinkweed and sell it.

    It was a wonderful brunch..........
    Its all natural strawberries, low calories, lots of vitamins (those that are hard to find sources of), antioxidents, digestive aiding ezymines, etc etc etc..... A cup of strawberries a day is way healthier than an apple. Decreases the risk of diabetes thru natural blood sugar regulation, loaded with ..... well they are good for you.

    They sure are a good way to take vitamins!
